There is a new player in the televised poker industry, the iSeriesLIVE, but unlike its predecessors and the current incarnations of televised poker shows, iSeries is putting a whole new spin on the staid programming that poker fans have grown accustomed to.

The iSeries will be an invitation-only poker series, bringing together the biggest stars in the poker world. However, the iSeries also offers the casual poker player and poker enthusiast a chance to get in on the action by placing real-time wagers on the outcomes of the poker game! Viewers will be able to bet on virtually anything that is taking place in the game, from what the color of the next card will be to who will win the event –with fluctuating lines based on what is transpiring.

The first iSeires event will take place on April 5th in Dublin, Ireland, and some of the biggest names in poker are already lined-up to participate, including Daniel Negreanu and Phil Hellmuth. For the players the iSeries will use a Ten-person Sit & Go format with a $10,000 buy-in; the tournament will use a winner-take-all structure, so the victorious player will earn $100,000.
